People Management Overview
People management starts with the hiring process -- understanding what you want a new hire to add to your team, your company, and your culture. Beyond the onboarding process, people management skills are about keeping track of how your employee is feeling as they navigate the workplace, and how best to maximize their good feelings towards their work. To understand how to manage people, it’s not just about what the employee says is or isn’t working for them -- it’s also assessing their emotional state. Often, the answer is in small details -- when they come into work, how they hit their goals (or not), how they receive feedback, what they talk about during one-on-ones, how their peers describe them in performance reviews, what they choose to share in status updates, how and when and if they are praised, etc. It’s only when you look at all these people management elements do you get a full picture of how your direct reports are feeling.
